NCC, NL, English School district sign MOU focused on increasing Inuttitut education, traditional knowledge

The NunatuKavut community council (NCC), the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District have signed a memorandum of understanding that will focus on providing more Inuttitut education and traditional knowledge in schools. Under the agreement, the partners will establish a working group that works on a variety of initiatives, including developing a NunatuKavut Inuit curriculum that will be available across NL, fostering the development of resources addressing the legacy of the residential school system and the experiences of NunatuKavut Inuit survivors, and exploring the possibilities for developing an Inuttitut language education in schools. The objectives of the MOU will be implemented using a joint action plan and reporting to ensure accountability. CBC reports that NCC Chief Governance Officer Amy Hudson did not confirm whether the curriculum would address the council’s disputed Indigeneity.
